|Notes||4 part OVA series, 1994, from Pioneer. 30 mins each.
UK: Vols #1, #2, 60m ea, cert.12, £12.99 ea.(1997)
US: 1995, Pioneer.
|Synopsis||"The Phantom Quest Corporation is run by Ayaka Kisaragi - a headstrong young woman with a penchant for designer clothes. She employs a weird collection of people with psychic powers who spend their days chasing ghouls and ghosts." Quite so. She also gets drunk a lot.|
|Review||The episodes are rather uneven, but my favourites are File 02, in which Ayaka gets drunk in a karaoke taxi-cab, and File 04, in which she tangles with a dodgy group of monks. I bought vol #2, so I must have liked it. The opening credit animation of each episode, which sweeps round and around, gradually revealing what Ayaka is standing on, is worth seeing.|
